How do they work?

They work through fusible links holding spring-loaded shutters open, when the temperature reaches around 72°C, the link fuses or melts and the shutter will drop to stop the hot air and smoke moving through the passage.

They play a very crucial role in building’s fire safety systems, if they don’t activate then fire can spread with rapid and lethal results. The difference in a well maintained working fire damper and a badly maintained partially working system can often be between life and death.
